Among The Living (1987)
Back in the mid-80’s thrash metal had gained so much speed that nothing could stop it. Bands like Slayer, Metallica and Exodus had established the genre to a wider audience outside the Bay Area. In New York Anthrax released their debut “Fistful Of Metal” in 1984 and had made some ripples on the scene but not much more. The main problem according to guitarist and co-founder Scott Ian was Neil Turbin who handled the vocals in the beginning and on the debut album who had an ego that grew into a monster. For the follow up changes needed to be done.
